Jailed for a miscarriage: El Salvador's strict abortion laws

In this edition we head to a country that has some of the world's strictest abortion laws. In El Salvador, abortion is completely outlawed. There are no exceptions for rape, incest or when the mother's life is in danger. Those found guilty face up to 30 years in jail. And even women who suffer a miscarriage can end up behind bars. Our colleagues from France 2 report from San Salvador, with FRANCE 24's Catherine Viette.
